I have an electric heater that is set to never let the shop get below 40 in the winter and in the summer I cut a hole in the wall and installed an AC that can cool double the footage of my shop. I started in my dads garage with no heating or cooling after years of that when I made my own shop heating and cooling was forefront on my mind. Oh and I have a window that opens but just the one so I can test markers without going outside

my current shop has good AC venting in the garage door for winter, and that door also faces the sun in summer. so i get to machine between 30*F-110*F. its a nice climate difference.

thats not too bad I had to do a major cleanup this weekend I was just about out of horizontal surface aria.

I guess here would be a good place to ask this. Has anyone tried gundrilling on an engine lathe? I did but the results were less than spectacular in fact it sucked. The hole was straight 16" deep but the finish was crap. I was going to make a custom barrel for a member on here but its starting to look a bit hopeless. I did try drilling a tube thinking maybe it would be easier since I would have to worry less about chip evacuation and much less loading. That came out better but still not good enough to be a barrel. I then reamed it to .6900 and polished looks ok for shine but their is still marks in the barrel that I am not happy with.

did you run a twist drill or a gun drill. you should be able to get a great finish with just drilling when using a gun drill, you will need pressurized coolant to get the chips out well.

second to gun drilling. using a core drill 1/64th under and then reaming with a spiral flute reamer will give you a great finish and consistency in size.

honest to goodness sterling gun drill with flood coolant. maybe 5 psi though so I am about 445psi low from what is recommended. I got to draw the line somewhere though and buying a high pressure pump and 20 gal of cutting oil was it. ill buy the drill but I am not going into the business of producing barrels dang it a man must know his limitations and thats it for me
